Can KPTI be the problem? If the host does not have PCID and INVPCID, VMs get really slow.
This document is for the most part relevant for OpenIndiana as well: https://omniosce.org/info/kpti E.g. try to boot OpenIndiana with "kpti=0".
I suggest you test the image on the real HW, VirtualBox may not be the right test here.
